"Everything can be seen from the dashboard."
"The support organization behind this product is extremely professional."
"The most valuable feature is the centralized management capability."
"The tech who handles Extreme IQ tells me it's easy to use and learn. He felt like it was pretty intuitive. It comes with solid training materials. He also has talked about the security features that give you as much or as little control as you want."
"ExtremeCloud offers features that not a lot of other vendors do like their data storage and the ability to swap licenses."
"What's most valuable for me in ExtremeCloud IQ is easy management. It also has centralized administration, so you don't have to go to the customer site to program it. It can be programmed remotely."
"It's extremely easy to deploy. Even our access points are behind the net, not using real, public IP. We can easily add to the cloud. For deployment, we just need to let the access point take the DSCP from IP and then, even if it's not a requirement, we can see the serial number from the access points and add the serial number to the cloud directly."
"The technical support for this solution is good."
"The most valuable feature is the cloud-managed aspect."
"ExtremeWireless is a flexible solution."
"The most useful feature is how the product integrates with the Microsoft directory in the cloud."
"ExtremeWireless has good performance."
"It's reliable and works well. It's pretty stable."
"ExtremeWireless provides us with enterprise-level authentication methods at an excellent cost. It supports all the latest authentication methods. Another advantage is the built-in DHCP server. We don't need third-party DHCP servers to get the IPF."
"The stability of the solution has been fine."
"It provides seamless connectivity if you move around."
"The licensing model could be improved."
"We'd like to have a cloud dashboard from which we can see all devices."
"A room for improvement in ExtremeCloud IQ is roaming. My team is facing roaming issues with the solution, particularly when using VoIP over WiFi. For example, VoIP sometimes breaks when you walk around the customer site. In terms of what I'd like to see in the next release of the solution, right now, the inventory for ExtremeCloud IQ is awful. There's no stock, and you must wait a year and a half for new stocks. It's awful."
"Having a wizard for customers who are just starting might be helpful."
"I know a school district, a big school district of mine, ripped out Extreme due to inefficiencies. It was the guest network that can be a struggle. They tried to differentiate between their primary network, and then offer a secondary."
"The dashboard and stability need to be improved."
"ExtremeCloud should invest in an SD-WAN solution or integration with SD-WAN."
"The managing of switches within this solution could be improved."
"ExtremeWireless support isn't very good."
"The user interface of ExtremeWireless could be better. It is not user-friendly."
"The solution should offer better support."
"The management portal is in need of improvement."
"Technical support is an area that needs to be improved."
"The cost is a little high."
"The main area for improvement is the company's local visibility."
"In the next release, I would like to see more security features."
